Dr Hatef Sadeghi, Group Leader

Dr. Sadeghi is an Associate Professor in Multiscale Modelling, UKRI Future Leaders FellowLink opens in a new window and Head of Device Modelling GroupLink opens in a new window in the School of EngineeringLink opens in a new window at the University of WarwickLink opens in a new window. He is a recipient of two prestigious fellowships, the Leverhulme Trust Early Career FellowshipLink opens in a new window in June 2017 and the UKRI Future Leaders FellowshipLink opens in a new window (the First cohort) in Feb 2019. His main research area is theoretical nanoscale electronics and computational material discovery and collaborates at the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Electronic Engineering. Hatef has developed new concepts and methodologies in the theory of nanoscale electronics including innovative strategies for demonstrating, controlling and exploiting quantum interference for applications in thermoelectricity, switching, sensing and optoelectronics. He has published more than 140 peer-reviewed papers several of which are in Nature, Nature Materials, Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, PNAS, JACS, Nature Communications, ACSNano, Advanced Functional Materials, Science Advances, Angewandte, etc. He is Topic Editor of NanomaterialsLink opens in a new window and has co-created the next generation quantum transport code "GOLLUM" and leads its development and distribution.
